Be sure to have the Facebook logo/badge appear in your HTML newsletters.
Users have to be a fan with intention to interact with your fan page in this way.
Say something creative like Write on our Facebook wall, or Join our Facebook community, or Come add your photo to our Facebook group, instead of the usual Join our Fan Page. That being said few organizations really grasp how valuable these ols are. Some AMS systems do have BI built in and others do not or So it’s very weak. It goes back to the old adage ‘you cant manage what you don’t measure’. Worth it and can be justified thru an ideal ROI. For the latter a separate application is typically required for BI, analytics and dashboards and the cost of an ideal BI package with configuration and training can be costly. Remember, the comment is tally out of context standing alone on a fan’s wall.
That doesn’t make any sense to me.
For any person’s comment to be posted on their FB wall?
Besides, the conversation stays in context on that website. Ok, thence I comment on a website through this widget, and maybe other people add to it to create a conversation. Your fans can join your fan page via text message! Fact, to join your fan page, Facebook users just send a text message to 32665 with the words fan yourusername OR like yourusername. You’ll need to get your first 25 fans and secure your username. There’re definitely here on this web page that I am intending to research further. You know what, Know what, I feel identical way. Nonetheless, suddenly having the ability to Like anything around the entire web and share that with my Facebook friends is really, really cool!!
I’m enjoying the creative implementation just like on levis.com!
Personally, I believe that the Like system is better, By the way I know what you mean about the fan or the like system.
I think it relates to the ambivalence that many selfemployed people feel ward ‘self promotion’. I remember when they first implemented the Fan page that loads of personalities with groups felt reluctant to ask others to become fans of their site. Anyways, threadless actually has their landing tab set up so visitors don’t have to become a fan to purchase/comment/interact. That is interesting right? They have organically built well nearly any piece of print media you use in your business. Your Facebook fan page, may be clearly displayed. Seriously. I love what Carrot Creative did on their team tab facebook.com/carrotcrea. Loads of information can be found online. Aha -excellent tip to add to the mix, Kristi!! Of course fan only content is something that is not talked about much. Very clever, and not that challenging to do. Hour A Day comes out May 3!
Amazon! My book with Chris Treadaway, Facebook Marketing. Ah, thanks hon! Fact, peeps I follow closely via Facebook friend lists, Twitter and their blogs include Pete Cashmore, Robert Scoble, Nick O’Neil, Justin Smith, Louis Gray, TechCrunch, ReadWriteWeb and a few more. On p of this, here’s why. Make sure you leave some comments about it below. Maintenance. So here’s a question. You know what’s really important in database management?
Among the costs of a bad system? It will make your good staff seek work elsewhere. How does your retention rate compare to others? That’s the wrong question to ask. There’s no middle ground. It’s an interesting fact that the data management cycle is either virtue or doom. Of course what do shovels have to do with choosing a AMS?!? Basically, in this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa talks with Wes Trochlil, president ofEffective Database Managementand author of Put Your Data to Work, published by ASAE. Wes is a real. I will use this one sparingly and,, monitor the response from your friends. Nonetheless, I have never been a fan of adding a signature block on Facebook wall posts as our name and profile picture thumbnail are always hyperlinked right back to our profile anyway.
Simple @ tag should be effective. Using an app like Profile HTML or Extended Info, you can create your favourite custom HTML, including a Facebook badge and graphic embedded, as shown in the screenshot below. It only works for sharing on your personal profile.
Whenever happening on your fan page and invite your friends to join if they haven’t already, add a compelling comment along the lines of exciting news, recent changes, special incentives, and all that stuff. Basically the Share button is all over Facebook and is a very handy feature. Periodically go to your fan page, scroll ward the bottom left column and click the Share+ button. I find the Share button a lot more effective than the Suggest to Friends approach. I loved the article Mari. Hopefully using this as a template can nearly any email you send out, instead of promoting your Facebook personal profile. Have a look at the Wisestamp signature addon, if you use webbased email. I would recommend adding a title above the box encouraging visitors to your site/blog to click the Like button. Select from quite a few the new Facebook Social Plugins and place them on your website and blog. Then, the Fan Box widget is now the Like Box and it works well to display your current fan page stream and a selection of fans -see screenshot below with Whole Foods Market Facebook Like Box.
These tips are great. I do have you’d better use Facebook as a page. I was at a hotel in San Francisco last fall and they had a placard in the elevators promoting their presence on Facebook and Twitter. Then the sign was very noticeable because of those ubiquitous Facebook and Twitter logos/colors! So a Hour a Day contains comprehensive instructions on maximizing your marketing through Facebook social ads. My book with Chris Treadaway, Facebook Marketing. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. By the way, a Hour A Day comes out May 3rd!!! Twitter at @facebookmktg and Chris and I are hosting a free virtual book launch party on May 3rd shouldn’t be clickable with just the www’ You have a limited quantity of characters.
Your point on being close on a LTV calculation is better than no LTV calculation is right on. I have seen where an organization tries to use BI as an exception report whereas BI must be thought of an ol to analyze trends and all of the ideas!!! Thanks for sharing them. Follow Mari on Twitter. Besides, a Hour A Day. Notice, mari Smith is a ‘widelyrecognized’ social media speaker and trainer, author of The New Relationship Marketing, and coauthor of Facebook Marketing. It’s great to come away with be able to put things into action immediately after reading an article. I immediately put up a Comment widget after reading this post and seek for to try Vpype soon a really new live videostreaming app called Vpype.
By announcing via Twitter, your personal Facebook profile, your blog and your email list, you can broadcast regular live Internet TV shows from your fan page and create much buzz.
I wrote up a review of this app here.
By the way, the app adds a tab to your fan page called Shows and when you broadcast as your fan page, everyone can view by default. Usually, that activity is pushed out into their stream, that creates valuable viral visibility for your fan page, as users comment on items. There is some more information about it on this site. As a matter of fact, and that’s the coolest story of how I first got into Facebook marketing -I was on the alpha team of a Facebook app! To be honest I do indeed get pitched a lot for all manner of new beta apps, and stuff and suchlike which I rather love!
You have 420 characters on the Facebook publisher and 140 on Twitter.
This works for any bit.ly link!
In the tweet that goes out, Facebook truncates your post past a certain character count and inserts a bit.ly link back to your fan page. Just paste the bit, with intention to track clickthrough stats on that link. I have started all my fanpages with socialnetexposure.com/ After I get initial number of fans -new one just come by them self. Awesome tips. Oftentimes I’m in the process of getting a Facebook Like page for my latest website venture Theme Thesis and this article’s really intending to help. Usually, with the new Facebook Like, it’s not possible to choose whether to post on Facebook or not. One other interesting tip I found was adding content that is exclusive to fans to encourage more to like your page. I actually really like the tip about signing with an @ tag when posting on other walls -what a subtle way to get your page out there, since I do have a profile.
It’s difficult to define how to find new fans, if you don’t have a personal profile linked to your Facebook fan page.
It’s great that mostly there’re we are looking at great suggestions. Assuming you have a ‘optin’ email list, definitelysend out an invitation to your subscribers via email letting them know about your fan page and encouraging them to join. Anyways, provide them with a description of the page and an incentive to join. Certainly, that said, this ubiquitous Like feature is making me even more cognizant of what I’m endorsing.
And therefore, thus far, By the way I like it!! Bottom line, it’s up to the user to decide how/where they wish to push content. I’m sharing on Facebook. Hey, great tips, thank you. I need a specific piece of information I wasn’t able to find anywhere. Thank you in advance. How about visiting 75 website. Needless to say, how do I do that, So if I look for to comment on some page and have my page name displayed instead of my personal profile name. You could equally use similar technique when posting on other fan pages, as with adding your fan page @ tag to posts you make on your friends’ walls. With that said, this needs to be used with discretion and I should advise against doing this on any potentially competing fan page! It’s the most targeted traffic your money can buy. Of course, from there, you can walk through the wizard and get an excellent anticipation of exactly how many Facebook users are in your exact target market. Just think for a moment. Scroll to the foot it’s a good idea to be able to boost your fan count using Facebook’s own social ad feature.
This strategy may not be that effective and can, actually, often backfire.
I have seen many industry gurus complain that when they decline a fan page request, it’s frustrating to continue to be asked again and again. I know that the good news is there’re many ways to promote your fan page and proactively increase your fan base without bugging your current Facebook friends, as well as by thinking wider than just Facebook. I have been waiting patiently for case studies of associations using business intelligence to advance their organization’s mission. On p of this, for over five years, I’ve been writing about the privileges of business intelligence for associations. For five years I was waiting to see signs of more associations adopting a business intelligence approach to using data.
